A Restorative Solution for a 12th Century Pub

The Stag Inn, Rackenford is well known for being one of the oldest pubs in Devon. UK Hardwoods supplied the real wood flooring, joinery timber and oak posts used during this renovation, reinstating the pub’s presence in the south west.

Open from Wednesday to Sunday they offer a light lunchtime menu using fresh produce. Their evening menu has been well considered, changing daily and following the seasons, using only produce that has been grown within the local vicinity. Specials include Devon venison, Exmoor goat and free-range veal.

The interior has been designed and crafted by the owners Steve and Oliver, who decided to work with UK Hardwoods using solid Oak flooring and Oak posts throughout the pub.

Steve and Oliver wanted to use a sympathetic approach to restoring the pub using materials that were locally sourced as they traditionally would have been when the pub was built in the 12th century. Our solid Character Oak flooring has been used throughout the upstairs of the pub. UK Hardwoods oak posts and lintels compliment the historic interior.

The Stag Inn used UK Hardwoods range of Oak skirting boards and joinery timber to create chairs, tables and benches. The landlords specified 2”  boards to make their symbolic feasting table, which welcomes you as you enter the pub.

Well worth a visit if you’re passing through on your way deeper into Devon or Cornwall, or if you live locally, join The Stag Inn for a sumptuous supper one evening and to admire our flooring!

We’ve fitted the Heritage Oak flooring with a Brown Oak sliding door in the bathroom. Bathrooms are always difficult to photograph, but I think we’ve managed to get in the most important pieces here.....wood floor and wood door. #flooring #floorideas #bathroom #door #woodfloor #wood #interiordesign #interior #bathroomideas #floors
1.5” brown burr oak waiting for somebody special to make something special with it. Sourced locally from the Pentille Castle Estate- it’s not often you find pieces like this. #joinery #wood #carpenter #carpentry #timber #oak #woodcraft #wood #devon #timbermill #furnituremaker #sawmill
THIS IS NOT A BOX- testing out different flooring styles with some of our Ash Range today, and this was one of the geometric patterns we came up with. #parquet #flooring #floor #floorsofinstagram #woodfloor #lightwoodfloor #floordesignideas #pattern #geometric #opticalillusion

Using our English Ash cladding on this curved roof has bought the ceiling a light airy look but brings in a warm natural vibe for when you want the house a bit warmer. Mixed widths have been used with a tongue and groove profile. #cladding #wood #panels #roof #ceilingdesign #ceiling #ceilingbeams #beams #flooring #interior #architecture #architecturephotography #timber #woodforgood
Our Serra Baveria SL130i is at the heart of the sawing season. Read our blog post here: https://www.ukhardwoods.co.uk/sawing-season-at-the-timber-mill/ Sawing trees up to 7.4m in length and 1.3m diameter at a precision level of 0.3mm. It’s the accuracy we need to create such special boards. #saw #serrasawmills #sawmill #machines #wood #timber #timberyard
